OK Hounds, let me give it to ya straight: The beef flour pie is hands-down the best thing to order at Cambridge's Qingdao Garden. It's banh mi in a pancake, not on a crusty roll, and it's delicious. But who knew? Not I, 'til my order got messed up one evening at Mr. Swank came home toting a free pie. Now it's all I order at QG. That and dumplings, of course.
What other pleasant surprises have you found on menus around town? I'm thinking of an American restaurant that *just so happens* to make a killer eggplant parm, or a Greek place with amazing French fries...you know, that sort of thing. I never would've gone to QG for flour pie but - well - my life has been forever enhanced!
